Technology Preview of Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode in Cyberpunk 2077 is here

Today marks the highly-anticipated launch of Cyberpunk 2077‘s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode technology preview, which promises to bring full ray tracing, or path tracing, to the forefront of the game’s graphics.

Lighting up Night City with Full Ray Tracing 

With this release, CD PROJEKT RED has once again raised the bar for technological advancements in gaming, as the game already utilizes multiple ray tracing techniques to render its futuristic world with incredible levels of detail.

The technology preview offers gamers a sneak peek into the future of video game graphics, with improved reflections, shadows, ambient occlusion, and more. And, with the help of NVIDIA DLSS 3 Frame Generation, GeForce RTX 40 Series owners can multiply their performance in the game, further enhancing their experience.

RTX ON: GeForce Gamers Embrace Ray Tracing & DLSS

DLSS momentum continues to pick up speed, as Everspace 2 and LEAP recently exited early access with DLSS 2 support, and Like a Dragon: Ishin! also received a DLSS 2 performance upgrade. These developments illustrate the rapid pace at which NVIDIA DLSS is being adapted, with over 280 DLSS-enhanced games and apps available today.

To learn more about Cyberpunk 2077‘s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode, an interview was conducted with Jakub Knapik, Vice President and Global Art Director at CD PROJEKT RED, and can be found on NVIDIA’s website.

NVIDIA’s introduction of the 3rd generation of RTX, along with DLSS 3, Reflex, and other new technologies, has paved the way for developers to create incredible ray-traced effects with performant frame rates and far less effort.

These advancements have proven to be well-received by gamers, with the majority of RTX owners now utilizing these features. In fact, 83% of GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers have enabled ray tracing, and 79% have accelerated performance with DLSS in RTX-capable games.

In comparison, other advancements and technologies, such as 4K and 144Hz+ high refresh rate gaming monitors, have been outpaced in terms of adoption.

Only 28% of gamers use 4K, and 62% of GeForce RTX 40 Series desktop GPU owners utilize high refresh rate gaming monitors. With the exponential growth of DLSS, it’s clear that NVIDIA’s AI-accelerated Frame Generation technology is making a significant impact in the gaming industry.
